You know, I never promised to post every day, and if ever an installment of Mary Worth was worthy of going unnoticed, today's certainly qualifies. However, I just want to take a moment to thank you, dear reader, for sharing your time with me. I am quite stunned that so many people are actually reading this blog. I particularly enjoy the comments of others, even if it is just to say how much you enjoyed or despised the day's cartoon.
I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend, whether you celebrate Easter or not. There are a lot of people suffering today. There's been flooding in Missouri, and tornadoes in Tennessee, and there are people still displaced so long after Katrina. These problems just scratch the surface. While I'm sure that I'll find many things to commend and condemn in Mary Worth's coming plot (please let there be a plot!), this story reminds me that some children won't wake up to Easter eggs and Peeps on Sunday morning, and it won't be for religious reasons. It's easy to be cynical, but maybe, just maybe, we can renew ourselves this spring by reaching out to someone less fortunate. Let's not forget to ask ourselves, "What would Mary do?"
